Hey I know this is just another one of thos ethreads about having problems connecting a wireless laptop to a network. But as of right now im just really confused, ive been reading forums and trying so many different things.

Im on vista with both my computers.

The wireless connection was working fine untill today it just randomly stopped, i figure this may be because i enabled my firewall on the laptop.

I can connect to the network but i get the message "local access only"

IM using cable internet

and here is my ipconfig thingy

C:\Users\Bbraithwaite>ipconfig /all >ipconfig.txt

C:\Users\Bbraithwaite>ipconfig

Is the internet down on both your computers?

Try resetting the modem then the router, there are ways to check connectivity through the routers control pages, but it's specific to model and I don't have that info so resetting is probably the best bet.

Your firewall being enabled shouldn't change the status of the connection, just your ability to utalize it, Try disabling the firewall just to check, but I doubt it will do it.

I'm assuming you tried repairing the connection already (right click on the connection icon: repair)
